Hello everyone and welcome to the DEV community to anyone who's new here!

My name is Bobby and I've been working as a Linux DevOps Engineer for a few years now! I am a big fan of Laravel and I help with all things around a website called DevDojo!

I recently wrote an open-source eBook on how to get started with Bash Scripting and I am currently recording a mini video series on the same topic:

My goal for this year is to reach 1000 subscribers on YouTube so I could enable monetization!

I'm a "late-bloomer" who recently discovered a passion for creating via code. I am here to write about my bootcamp journey, and cool new things I learn along the way. I am told that having an online presence is a must for those with a non-CS background. Formerly a mental health & arts professional, you might catch me blog about how coding makes me feel occasionally...

Hey, I’d love to connect and maybe even share some insights. I read your other article, and I can so relate to that.
I signed up here to meet like-minded people, and I would love to at least know one other female programmer and to share experiences :)

Hi Lisella, thank you for reading my article and I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one who feels this way :) I've sent you a message!

Hi all, I’m a Software Engineering Apprentice on a path to learning Fullstack JavaScript at Techtonica.
Before this, I was an Illustration and graphic design student/intern, which was what introduced me to web development!

I’m hoping to learn about cool new technologies and implementations from this community. Tech changes so fast that there’s always something new to learn! I love to combine art and design with the power of technology, and hope to create tools to help designers design more effectively. Perhaps I’ll document my journey to learning development or share musings or things that I’ve made on here.

Hi everyone.

I’m currently self teaching myself through udemy courses, youtube, freecodecamp, and other online tools.

I hope to get a front end developer job one day. I’ve been lurking online but never went for it. With all the new online resources, i’ve been learning a lot. I’ve learned the beginner basics of react and javascript the last few months.

Looking forward to all the discussions and topics on here.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Jason, and I'm the CTO and CoFounder of CoScreen, a next-generation multi-pair remote collaboration tool:

I have been programming and interested in programming since I was a kid, and have worked in software development for over 20 years, originally starting writing embedded firmware for data acquisition for the HiRes high-energy cosmic-ray research project at the University of Utah (

Since then I have mostly worked in various startups, including being the first full-time engineer at HireVue, as well as making a mobile sign language communication product for Sorenson Communications (

My goal is just to stay connected to the wider developer community and keep my finger on the pulse of how things are changing in the software development world.

Hi everybody! Your posts brought me here - I'm a recent bootcamp grad and I've been reading lots of articles ever since I started my webdev journey.

My name's Michael and I got deeply interested in software back in 2017 thanks to cryptocurrency. Some friends and I started a YouTube channel that I hosted, where I got to ask researchers about their network designs and encryption. It was a lot of fun!

Since then I've written some articles about software and job-searching. I'm thinking about publishing here instead of and I was wondering if you had any thoughts on which platform's better for growing an audience?

I think that is a really good platform for building an audience. If you check my account for example, around 500 followers and 20k views in a month.
Welcome to!

Edit - If you want I'm interested in writing an article together / exchanging links

Hi, Everyone!:)
Currently going through TheOdinProject's JavaScript full stack path.. To be more precise - struggling through it))). Study burnout is my frequent "guest".
I recently found out about this community from someone's article on medium (There is too much too learn, I haven't done any moves towards meeting people from the community. Maybe, that's was a mistake).
Apparently, I'm not being great at networking).
Staying on the "behind the curtain" side - reading a lot, but not really getting involved into any discussions.

Hope to become one of the dev "wizards" one day.:)))))

Hello World!!
I am Raj, second year student of Computer Engineering from India

For a long time, I relied solely on my formal education. I put too much faith in it. Last year, when I joined college and all that faith fell off a cliff, I realised the importance of self learning and doing one’s own research. I think there are a lot of people who find themselves in my shoes.

I am writing to have a healthy sharing of knowledge between like minded people

I totally understand your point, formal education provides a solid knowledge base but the speed at which technology evolves these days is incredible.
